Saturday Snapshot: Herbs

Lavender

Herbs are one of my favorite things to plant.  I have several pots, each filled with an herb along with an annual flower or two.  Of course the plants are functional, but they are also beautiful: from the fuzz of sage, the shiny leaves of basil, or the sweet little lavender flowers, herbs are a surprisingly lovely addition to the garden.  I absolutely adore being able to go to my patio, pinch off some basil, and add it into whatever I'm making.  My new favorite is adding a generous amount of mint along with one or two basil leaves to my water.  It's so refreshing!

Do you plant herbs?  What is your favorite way to use them?

  1. I'm not a huge fan of gardening, but I'm helping my mom from time to time. We've got some pretty small basil bushes, melissa and mint:)
